Art and Animation by Will Rose

Will is an old old buddy of mine and I’d like to showcase some of his artwork and animation here on my blog.

I always admire his perfection in choosing colour palettes, with a quirky artistic style and lots of inspiration from his love of bird watching.

I hope you enjoy his work!
